AMERICAN music star Patti Smith is to host a fundraising gig for the famous Brontë museum.
The singer, songwriter, poet and artist, often referred to as the ‘Godmother of Punk’ decided to perform after visiting the Haworth-based museum last year.
Jenna Holmes, arts officer at the Brontë Parsonage Museum, said: “We’re delighted that Patti Smith is supporting the museum and will host this special performance in Haworth.
“This will be a remarkable evening in a tiny venue very close to the Parsonage – we are expecting a huge response.”
The performance with support from Tony Shanahan is at 8pm on Friday, April 19.
Tickets are £25 and can be booked from the Brontë Parsonage Museum – call 01535 640188 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
